Welcome to the Delilla Siamese and Oriental experience!
Our very first cattery name was Karlis and registered with South African Cat Federation since 2002 with our first breeding queen LaMaska LaLuna of Karlis.
Delilla Siamese and Oriental was first owned by my sister and her husband, Sonia and Ben Smuts. They started breeding Siamese and Orientals in 1993. Sadly in 2005, Ben was offered an opportunity in Australia, and the Smuts family moved to Perth from where we took over the breeding (and registered name) with only one queen, Sp Ch Delilla Kardi.
We are a very small cattery and wish to stay like this. We believe in giving all our cats lots of attention and love. Our kittens are therefore raised in a loving home. They are a part of our family from birth and with the help of my two daughters, Nadia and Renate (and their friends), we manage to raise kittens with exceptional personalities…..all to become healthy, happy and well-socialized pets! We do not raise any kittens in cages.
Kittens will only be placed to an approved forever-home between 12 and 16 weeks, inoculated, dewormed and registered with the Southern African Cat Counsel or Cat Association of South Africa, with a signed adoption contract.
I love showing our pedigreed cats and Delilla has produced several Supreme Champions over the years.
A big thank you to Theresa Fouche and Hanneke Bestbier for all the beautiful pictures
